I'm very excited to be part of another month-long residency with Synecdoche Art Community, this time at The Vestibules, Bristol this September. It starts on September 4th so come and see what happens.....More details to follow....

(And the poster is an image of part of the work I did at the Bodies residency last September, Don't wash your dirty laundry in public, 2016)

Synecdoche presents [dis]place at The Vestibules, City Hall, Bristol

dis: prefix - changing a term to the negative 

place: noun - a particular position, point, or area in space; a location

           verb - to put something somewhere

displace: verb - to move or put out of the usual or proper place

A group of artists from Synecdoche, a Bristol-based art community, will explore the ideas that these definitions evoke during their month-long residency at The Vestibules in September 2017. Displaced from their normal routines to make art in a public space, they are aiming to work differently, reacting to this new environment, bringing a range of practices and ideas that will hopefully change and evolve over time. The visitors may influence what happens, through interaction, conversation or by their very presence. There will always be something to see, to inspire and engage. Come with an open mind; every day will be different.

Can the experience of being displaced offer a fresh perspective, unexpected connections and a new understanding?
